Vaser Liposuction for Male Breast Reduction (Gynecomastia)
In a great number of cases, gynecomastia can be successfully treated using Vaser liposuction. Using a tiny cannula, or liposuction tube, our surgeons remove excess fat by obliterating and draining the fat cells to sculpt a flatter, natural looking male chest with a relatively simple outpatient surgery and a quick recovery. Chest liposuction requires only one or two tiny scars, typically located in the armpit or another inconspicuous location in the chest area.
Male Breast Reduction (Gynecomastia) with Tissue Excision
In patients with larger male breasts, in cases where a great deal of the excess breast tissue is composed of glandular tissue, or in men with sagging, stretched skin on the chest, our surgeons may recommend tissue excision. During this type of male breast reduction procedure, an incision is typically made around the edge of the areola. Through this incision, excess glandular tissue and fat are removed, and the chest is sculpted into a flatter, more naturally masculine shape. While tissue
excision leaves a somewhat larger scar, most patients find that scars are barely perceptible once healed.
In many cases, tissue excision and liposuction can be combined for an optimal result. This allows our surgeons to remove an adequate amount of tissue and sculpt an attractive shape to the chest. Many men also choose to have abdominal liposuction during the same operation to achieve a leaner overall physique.
